If you are struggling with change…

by vernsanders on July 3, 2009

It has been my experience that change in worship, particularly change in order to be culturally relevant, always (I say always) brings some level of unhappiness, if not downright rebellion, on the part of some people. And, stereotypically, the resistence comes from “the old folks.” I think this is a gross overgeneralization, but I also know that things don’t become stereotypes by accident. More importantly, stereotypes don’t change without education, time, and a lot of work.

Which brings me to this interesting blog entry by Ted Vaughn. I’ve been resisting the calls to comment upon Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett, but I think Vaughn has provided some interesting insights into why “old folks” may resist change — and it is not necessarily because they resist it. Think about this the next time you embark on a worship change. It may make things easier.
